Today I was off work and decided to have a chillout day……….well, that was before I started looking through all my recipe books. I came across a baking book that I hadn’t used for a while. Looking through I spied Blueberry muffins and thought that would be a nice wee treat with my afternoon coffee…….so off I went into my Kitchen.
They were absolutely delicious. I also made a healthier version too, check them out here.
150g Plain Flour
75 g Caster Sugar
1 tsp baking powder
25g Butter – melted
1 large egg
40ml natural yoghurt
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to fan 160 deg. Case a muffin tin.
Mix the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar in a bowl.
In a separate bowl mix the egg, vanilla, butter, yoghurt together
Add the wet bowl into the dry bowl and mix together, should be slightly thick, if its too thick just add a little milk.
Then add in the blueberries and mix together.
Bake in oven for about 18-20 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.
I used my Best Pancake recipe for this, it is one recipe that always works. Light Fluffy pancakes guaranteed. This morning was a more healthier option with low fat toffee yoghurt, blueberries and a little Maple Syrup…….oh so yummy!
I love mixing up pancakes, there are so many toppings you can choose. What is your favourite?
I normally have porridge in the mornings but this week I fancied a change but still something that was quick, easy and healthy. I came across this Mornflake Oatbran Granola and thought…..yes…that will do……and oh my….it is so delicious.
I had it with natural yogurt (Low Fat), added some raspberries and blueberries for my berry superfood fix and WOW, this was absolutely scrumptious! My new quick healthy option breakfast.
O.K….so I cheated a bit and bought shop meringues (time saving), as you have probably read before I got some Edinburgh Gin’s Raspberry Liqueur…….so yes you guessed it, I used this instead of syrup……oh sooooooo yummy!
5 mini meringues
Handful of summer fruits, I used Strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and redcurrants
